Server Updates

Rochen HostingIf you're a frequent user here at joomlashack you may have noticed our server was performing rather slowly and sometimes not at all for the past few days. Those days are over now. Thanks to Brad Baker and Chris Adams of Rochen, we are back on track with a lighting fast system in a brand new home right next door to Joomla!
Rochen Engineered Hosting is the same great company that houses the websites at joomla.org and we're proud to support them. Thanks for bearing with us while we migrated over. We hope this didn't set anyone back. You can now browse this site with better speed and reliability.

Joomla! Jargon

Dictionary.com defines jargon like this:

1. jargon: -noun, the language, esp. the vocabulary, peculiar to a particular trade, profession, or group: medical jargon.

It also defines jargon like this:

2. jargon: -noun, unintelligible or meaningless talk or writing; gibberish.

Joomla!'s roots go back a few years, and it definitely has a language all its own. Seasoned veterans are fluent in Joomla! jargon, but for "newbies", that second definition is probably the most appropriate definition for what Joomla! jargon really is. For that reason, I have decided to attempt to compile a list of the most commonly used words and/or phrases in Joomla!, and give them a definition that actually means something to a non-veteran Joomla! user.

How to use Google Adwords on a Joomla website

If you have a website (Joomla or otherwise), and you have a vague interest in getting traffic, then pay per click (PPC) need to be part of your Search Engine (SEM) strategy.

Why is pay per click so useful? If you put an ad in a magazine about your product, you pay the magazine the add fee and it goes in. At that point you are hoping that the ad is compelling enough to get people to call/email/visit your site. If you get no leads from the ad, then you still had to pay the magazine the fee.

Joomla Errors and the www. Domain Mismatch

Many Joomla users, particularly newbies (newcomers or beginners), fall victim to a variety of issues which have the same root cause.

The www domain mismatch causes a wide variety of issues such as login failures (both core and Community Builder logins, and administrator logins), WYSIWYG editors failing to load or failing to save content, javascript execution halted with error messages.
